What makes this CBD supplement different?

Dr. Laviolette has made an amazing discovery:
New Pathway Discovery: The formulated ingredients bond and synergistically attach to the PPAR receptor allowing the Mentanine® formula to cross the blood-brain barrier “BBB” to target the central nervous system (the brain) with amplified effects and efficacy. CBD by itself does not do this.
With improved efficacy, Mentanine® (plant-based cannabidiol “CBD” and natural IP formula) addresses the brain inflammation responsible for neurological conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and addiction.

Developed by Mark Grant, MA, this app uses bilateral stimulation to reduce feelings of anxiety and panic. “What does bilateral stimulation do? Bilateral stimulation is a core treatment element of EMDR and a process which distinguishes EMDR from any other method. While there is still a lot to learn about this amazing process, it can be said that it produces four main effects:

  1. A relaxation effect including decreased physiological arousal.
  2. Increased attentional flexibility (meaning that your thoughts become less ‘stuck’ on whatever was bothering you).
  3. Distancing effect (meaning that the problem seems smaller and further away).
  4. Decreased worry.
    These effects are experienced as a ‘bottom-up’ cascade of changes meaning that they are experienced in the lower areas of the brain first, as a physiological response (ie; decreased tension) then travel ‘up’ the brain leading to mental changes (eg; decreased worry). Because this order works with how the brain normally processes information, the effects are often experienced more quickly and easily than with say top-down strategies such as insight and conscious introspection.”

With iMoodJournal, you’ll start tracking your mood in no time! You can do this any time, from any place with these easy steps. Later, you can discover more advanced options in the app.

“Tapping, also known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), is a powerful holistic healing technique that has been proven to effectively resolve a range of issues. It is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.

The basic Tapping technique requires you to focus on a negative emotion at hand – a fear, a worry, a bad memory, an unresolved problem, or anything that’s bothering you. While maintaining your mental focus on this issue, you use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times on 9 specific meridian points of the body.

Tapping on these meridian endpoints, while verbally or mentally addressing the root cause of distress, sends a calming signal from the body to the brain, allowing you to feel relaxed and in control.”

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a comprehensive, integrative psychotherapy approach. It contains elements of many effective psychotherapies in structured protocols that are designed to maximize treatment effects.
